I told my mother I'd gather all our cd's and other music, and compile a playlist with "upbeat/happy/party" type music.

while I knew that I'd be asked to pull the Japanese music out of the list, it still irks me.

there's some damn fine Japanese songs out there that fit that theme

of course, once I've gathered all the music, and eliminated all the slow/sad/sappy songs, if the total left is high enough, I fully intend to pick out a few Japanese songs and slip them in. >:) if the playlist is long enough, and on shuffle, I can claim I accidentally missed removing it, right?!?

cause I talked about it the weekend it happened, and Sadler demanded to see the picture here.

this photo was taken after one of my cousins swiped a piece off my arm, and before I went back and tried again to make the machine work right. of course, my one cousin went and used the machine while I was de-sugaring myself and she managed to get it to work fine. I think she just threatened it properly.

Bun-bun, if you catch this, cause I know you will, follow the picture link to look at the rest of the pics from that weekend, I finally managed to pilfer them from dad. of course, now there's Stella's birthday tomorrow, and I'm gonna have to hound him for those pictures.

it's been an interesting weekend, and it's not even over yet, we have another party to go to tommorow...

Yesterday we had what we call a pig roast, I've never looked into how popular this type of thing is, but where I used to live, when people asked where I was going memorial day weekend, and I said to a pig roast they'd look at me and go "huh?"

our pig roast is sort of a family reunion as well as celebrating memorial day, we also celebrate any other important event, my one cousins birthday is the 28th of may, so we have a cake  and presents for her (well, given that the party is at her parents house eh) if there's a graduation or something like that, we celebrate that as well.

this year was one of our more interesting years, but since I'm tired, have to go do dishes still and want to go to bed, I'm only doing high lights.....that and I was drunk fairly early on.

mmmm....*skims through the night* .... all the really funny stuff I can remember was the dancing and fooling around up at the kareoke tent, and that was mostly you had to be there stuff.

one thing I heard about later, but wasn't acctually witeness to, was my one uncle trying to toast a marshmellow, and it caught fire, and he started waveing it around to try and put it out, and it landed on my dads leg, on his sock, supposedlt my mother laughed so hard she had tears comming out of her eye's, and at some point my uncle started hitting my dads leg with the marshmellow stick....and my father screamed like a girl....don't worry, my dad just pulled off his sock and he was fine, but knowing this is set up for this afternoon.

this morning my father decided to play a trick on my uncle, he had us dig out some makeup, and paint a burn on his leg where the marshmellow had landed(darn I forgot to steal the camera and cord to get a copy of the photo we took of it before we left), and then when we got back to where the people were meeting back up, just casually walked up and waited to see what happened.

we fooled every one, we kept the uncle who made the marshmellow fly going the longest, but by then, too may people were trying to hold in the laughter. and after that, every new group that showed up was subjected to a deeper plan of attack, after a while my dad was limping around and jumping and yelling everytime someone touched the fake burn, it even fooled the profesional paramedic in the family *snickers*

.....brain fart.....what else happened.....something elses happened in between then and midnight......what was it dangit.....*shrug* can't remember.

at midnight though, we celebrated my cousins 21st birthday, and she took some shots with her dad, and every one kept cracking jokes how she should look more like she'd never had the stuff before.

but even better, was after that, while outside around the fire, one of our cousins asked the birthday girls boyfriend how he was going to handel her in 20 minutes after three shots of alcohol, and without missing a beat he replyed "I'll just put her to bed like I always do" while sitting right next to her father.

other than that, there was a fun competition going between my little brother and our one cousin playing guitar hero, but then, those two have always been like that.

I also just realized that my uncle (who is my fathers second oldsest sibling, of which he has 6, and he is number 4 of) his oldest son is only a year older than me (*chuckles* he thought I meant he looked old *grin*), that just wowed me, because I truely thought he was closer to my second oldest brother, who's about 4 years older than me. I blame it on the fact that they live in many many states away, and we only see them once, maybe twice a year, in fact, this is the first time they've come to the pig roast, ever.

now, dishes, sleep, party tommorow....can't decide if I want to go swimming or not...higher chance, this aunt has an inground pool, not an above ground one.
